5 Effective Home-Based Alternatives To Makeup Removers For Sensitive Skin
Sometimes, skin care products can be quite a splurge. Good-quality serums, night creams and in this case, makeup removers, can be heavy on your pocket, which is when you start considering some home-based options. If you have supremely sensitive skin, we recommend that you put product experimentation to a temporary halt, and give the following tried-and-tested removers a go:
1. Olive oil
When it comes to skin care, the wonders of olive oil are hard to beat. Apart from removing layers of makeup on your face, you can use it to remove waterproof mascara, and at the same time, nourish your lashes. It works equally well on removing the stickiest of matte lipsticks.
2. Water + Vitamin E capsules + Oil
You can also store this concoction in a small jar or bottle for long-term usage! While the Vitamin E content nourishes comparatively sensitive areas (eyelids, T-zone, and lips), the water reduces the overall oiliness on the face. Mix one part water, one part oil of your choice and a couple of ’em capsules, and you’re done!
3. Aloe vera juice + Oil
Yet another excellent ingredient for overly sensitive skin, aloe vera juice, when mixed with oil (we recommend olive or jojoba), does wonders to remove makeup! It doesn’t just remove the last remnants of makeup, but its plethora of antioxidants like beta carotene, vitamin C and vitamin E maintains the firmness of your skin too.
4. Honey + Baking soda
You see, sensitive skin is often allergic to acidic products, and so, by virtue of being alkaline, baking soda neutralizes the chemicals that cause irritation on the skin. When mixed with honey, it works as a wondrous cleanser too! Simply dip a cotton ball into the concoction, and get going with makeup removal.
5. Rose water + Organic coconut oil
Is there anything more purifying than rose water? The fragrance alone livens up the senses! Mix equal parts rose water and organic coconut oil (organic is better for sensitive skin), and store in a jar or bottle. There you have it — an easy, simple recipe for removing makeup and nourish your skin at the same time.
